Title:
Investigation of small-scale propellers under non-axial inflow conditions 
Abstract:
Small-scale propellers, especially those used on conventional multicopter configurations or in the context of urban air mobility, may experience high inflow angles. In order to improve their aerodynamic efficiency, a better understanding of the flow-fields that occur under non-axial inflow conditions is required. Therefore, both isolated and ducted small-scale fixed-pitch propellers are analyzed at a range of inflow angles from zero to 180 degrees, to investigate their steady and temporal resolv...    »
